This gives you some idea of scale. 
The courthouse painting is 6" X 6". 
Have a wonderful weekend.
Also for those of you who like to come to
the studio for some paint time I'm toying with
Monday's with MB starting in June.
If it's a good idea let me know.
Format - 9:30 sharp(1/2 hour demo)
Then Paint on your own till noon 
then discussion and questions till 12:30.


36"h X 18"w
Oil on canvas


I wanted to paint this image a lot larger than I have ever attempted before. 
It was a painting quest - I enjoyed the process and the outcome. 
Thanks for looking.

6" X 6"
Downtown Steamboat Springs has changed quite a bit but one thing remains constant
 The Courthouse.
I love this building. The front doors are 3" thick. 
 The classic architecture is truly appreciated along with the history and sense of place.
 Remember when the jail was in the basement???
The times they are a changing.
Thanks for looking.

This gives you an idea of scale on the Usual Suspect Pez piece.
We are praying for snow!
I rode my bike twice this week and that's not a good thing
in the scheme of things. 
Thanks for looking.

"1937 DIAMOND T"
Rod Schrage owns this truck and parks it in front of his business
for various holidays. I talked to him about the truck and found out that
this truck has been in Routt County since it was new. It was originally
a forest service truck. It has had three owners all locals since its
days in the forests of Routt County. Quite a lot of history behind this vehicle
and for Rod some great memories. 
Thanks for looking.

Sorry for the lack of posts. I have been so busy it feels like
there's been no time to breathe. I've painted a couple of larger
pieces - got some OK photos of them today. 
First Friday is tonight - February 6th
At the Depot
I plan to do a painting demo if you're in town 
between 5 - 7(first friday goes till 8)stop on by.
I bought a new guerilla painter pochade box that I'm going to
give a whirl. See if it works and what I need to change.
Have a great weekend wherever you are!
Thanks for taking a look.
